Salad Days Were Never So Green
Before this becomes stale or otherwise spoils, I’d better let you know that Bacteria Salad is the latest in The Arcade Wire series of newsgames by Persuasive Games, the studio of Water Cooler Games’ Ian Bogost. Sources of potential spinach contamination include not only otherwise-friendly bovines, but also agroterrorists. Safe for lunch.
